Bribie Island Hotel has started a $2.2million renovation to transform it into a modern, coastal venue and entertainment hub.

Operator Australian Venue Co aims to revitalise all the pub areas, including the indoor bistro, beer garden, sports bar and gaming room.

A new children’s play area will also be in the beer garden.

During the first part of the renovations the sports bar will remain open to serve food and beverage as will the gaming room.

Value-led classics

Slated to fully re-open at the end of this year, Bribie Island Hotel will have a capacity of 250 seated guests in the bistro and 250 seated in the beer garden.

The menu will focus on value-led classics, with pub favourites alongside seafood specials and a new woodfired pizza menu, snacks and share dishes.

“Bribie Island Hotel is a fantastic destination for locals and visitors to enjoy a pub experience, but it was time for a refresh,” says Craig Ellison, Chief Operating Officer of Australian Venue Co.

“We can’t wait for customers old and new to see the big reveal later this year and be able to use the new spaces.

'For our locals'

“We’re building this pub for our locals, so we’re asking them what they want to see. Our customer feedback will shape the next chapter of the Bribie Island Hotel.”

“Australian Venue Co is investing heavily into the Queensland market so we can create modern pub experiences in the heart of the local community.”

Australian Venue Co’s recent renovations include Beenleigh Tavern, Crown Hotel, Kings Beach Tavern, Fitzy’s, The Wallaby, Chancellors Tavern and Mihi Tavern.
